Chase has desided he is alot more indepent and now really only want Dad and Mam-Maw. AARRRGGGG.... I don't know how much more crying for them I can take.
Tate is going to be starting preschool January 5th. He got to met his teacher today and is so exctied to go to school and to ride a bus.
Jocleyn is being really helpful with every thing that I need her to do. I can't belive what a great big girl is is starting to be come! Of course she is still full of drama but I don't think that is going any where any time soon. She is so excited to give gifts to all our family and is excited for what she knows that others are getting. I am so greatful that is.
Bryan has been really pretty busy with work and we have had work Christmas parties the last two weeks. It is always fun to get out for a fun work party. Hopfully we will be getting the pictures from the big one so you guys can see how pretty we looked all dressed up!
I am doing pretty good most days any more I still have times that I get hurting really bad but it hasn't been as bad as it was at first. I am so greatful that Heavenly Father has awnsered my prayers and is leting me be able to take care of all the things that I really want to for Christmas. I have cut back on what and how much I am doing and doing at one time. It has been really hard for me but I am just so greatful that I am able to do as much as I am. I am so counting my blessng!
I am so excited that Josh will be home in less than a week! The other day Jocleyn and I were talking about this broken shoe. It can't be fixed but she was sure that if we save it for Uncle Josh that he would be able to fix it when he gets here. He can fix alot of things but that shoe is not one of them. It just made me Laugh!
Hopfully I can get better about posting and updating again I jsut get so busy with life I for get too!

Jocelyn has been a huge help with cleaning and helping out with the boys. I guess this is a great time to teach since I can't do it all for her she is really learning to do a lot.
Tate is going to be tested for he's speech on Wen. I hope he gets excepted. He is like Jocelyn and will have to qualify strictly on his poor speech he is right on or above for every thing Else.
Chase is trying to be a big help but is to small to be much. He can say dinosaur now and all the sudden has falling in love with all dinosaurs. Which is great since we didn't know what to get him for Christmas. Mam-maw brought him back one from Florida and he has been carring it around ever since.
Bryan has had stomach flu 3 times in the last 1 1/2 the rest of us just once. But I am hoping he is finally over that. He has been a huge help and every day just keeps becoming more help.
I want to tell every one that I am grateful for all the love and support that has been shone to our family. And to give a spacial thanks to my Mother in Law for coming over and helping get caught up on laundry and all the help cleaning. It is much easier to stay on top of now.
I hope every one is doing well and having a great Holiday season so far!

I feel like I never post pictures of Tate. The other day when mom was taking pictures of Jocelyn's missing teeth she snapped a couple of the boys too. Tate loves to play with cars, trains, planes, rockets pretty much anything with a engine. Well he was playing with a plane and a few snap shoots turned out to look like a well thought out photo shoot. I don't know how she does it but she always seems to capture the kids the way they really are with a pro look to it. I LOVE this set of Tate! It is so him!

Last night while getting the kids ready for bed Jocelyn asked if her tooth was ready to come out yet. So I was wiggling her tooth and it was really loose. So she asked me to pull it she wanted the tooth fairy to come again so we tryed for about 5 minutes and I was ready to give up when she asked me to please try one more time ....
And it came out! And the tooth fairy come again and gave her another dollar. She is so excited to go to target with dad tomorrow night to get some thing out of the $1 bins. ANd to get Wallie.
She is just growing up to fast

Yesterday Jocelyn clean her room with out being asked and did a really good job. I had told her the night before that I couldn't come in and tuck her in to bed and kiss her goodnight in her bed because I can't step over all the things on the floor. So she cleaned her room so I could tuck her in to bed. It really meant allot to me.
Tate has been so cuddly lately he use to be all the time but now he is only some times. But he will just climb up and sit with me at least a few times a day now. I love the the cuddles from him.
Chase has been giving kisses like crazy. They are wet and sticky and some times gross but he always knows when I am really needing a kiss. He also has been helping Jocelyn clean up. He love to clean the living room with her. He calls it WOO-WHO-ING since we always say WOO-WHO when he puts things away where they go.
My mom has been helping a ton with kids and driving and has even started cooking again to help us out she cooks 2 nights a week for me so that it isn't so much for me and Bryan to do. I can't stand up real long at one time so I am can't cook allot of things any more. I sure do appreciate all her help.
My wonderful husband has really stepped up. I didn't know that he was could handle and do so many things. I am love him to death and every time I don't think I could love him any more he does something and I fall even more in love. He now does all the dishes and laundry and is cooking at least 2 nights a week. He is so much more help with the kids and is so kind and loving with me. He is also more understanding that he has ever been before about the pain and all the things that I can't do. He is always reminding me that I have to take it easy so I don't over do it since I push my self to much. I am having a hard time not being able to shop as much. I love him and am so lucky to have such a great guy!
I am so grateful for all the wonderful people I have in my life that are so supportive to me and my family. I am so happy to be alive and spend every day with my kids and watch our family learn and grow stronger together. As painful as this is I am gratefully for all the things that I have learned from having it and the love that is growing because of it!

I am now 22 weeks and up untill about a week ago doing really pretty good. How ever I started having this pain that is only getting worse and is making it hard to walk, stand or even sit up right for very long. I went to my OBGYN and he said that I have Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction. I went to a chiropractor today as well to see if they could realigned me to help. My OBGYN said that even with being adjusted that I would still most likely be in allot of pain until after I have the baby he also said that I need to only wear really supportive comfortable shoes. I then turned to Bryan and said now more high heels and the Dr looked at me like I was crazy for even thinking about high heels. There is really not much that can be done for it. I am going to be getting a belt to help keep my hips from spreading more and I am going to see the chiropractor again 2 more times this week to see if that helps and if it doesn't then I am going to give up on that. But I am hoping that I can find some thing that works because other wise it is going to be a long painful 4 months.

This picture always makes me smile. Well I guess not always. The day it happened I was one grumpy mommy.It happened a few months ago but I recently saw the picture again and wanted to share it! The kids had been really quite. Which for every one that knows my kids is not normal. And to top it off Joseph was here too. Well I went in to check to see why so quite and Tate and Joseph were sitting with Chase who had the peanut butter jar eating it by the fist full. Both fists. When I ask them why they didn't tell me Joseph said that he didn't know hat Chase had it. I was a very grumpy mommy but still kept my cool enough to take a few pictures since I knew I would look back and laugh later.

Jocelyn had a talk and had it memorized but still needed a few one word promptings and Joseph Had his part memorized and then had a violin solo and played it really good. He play I am a Child of God and every one was impressed. On the Friday practice the only time all the kids were actually quite was while Joseph played his song. I am so proud of both of them. Their school teacher came to see Joseph come and play his solo and while she was there realized that she knew Brent. What a small world. They use to be in the same ward. The kids were so excited she came and are making thank you cards for her.
So after the program I had to go and do sharing time. I asked to switch with one of the other ladies because last year I had to do the whole month of October for the program and then I had sharing time for November. I had the music person do a whole Sunday of primary music so I did a whole Sunday of sharing time. I was so afraid that I was not going to have enough things to do but I ran out of time for both Jr. and Sr. But the kids were all very excited to not have to sing more than a song or two.
AAAAHHHHHH now off to the next big thing. I am giving one of my best friends a Baby shower on Nov. 8th which is the same day as my kids fall festival at school. I signed up to take baked goods to be sold. And them after I make it though that I am sure I have a billion things to get done you know like Christmas.... and I asked to have Bryan's families Christmas dinner at my house so I don't have to do as much driving this year. All of my family is with in about 5 miles or so. And we try really hard to see every one on both sides on Christmas. But I will leave all the Christmas stuff for another post:)

If you any one reads this tonight the Fry's at Mckellips and Stapley didn't get there truck today like they were suppose to and so they are writing rain checks for allot of the "case" sale. I got rain checks for four, sugar, tomato sauce, spaghetti sauce, cup of noodles, and evaporated milk. So if you can make it today it might be worth it:)
I should start another blog just for sales and deal:)

I really appreciate all the teachers that come every week and for all the help they were yesterday during the craziness. I appreciate our Chorister for teaching and leading all of our music that is now small job either. I also appreciate all the parents that worked so hard with their children to have their talks ready and had their parts memorized! What a huge difference it makes when the kids were ready instead of me feeding them the lines. I know Heavenly Father always blesses the little ones and the program goes great every year.
We have one more practice on Friday and I am praying that it goes better.

We still haven't decided on a name yet. Regardless to what Jocelyn may say even though the name Digger is starting to sound cuter the more it is said it hasn't stuck yet. A couple of the names we like are Brennen and Jett there aren't many we can even agree on. Joseph and Jocelyn are both really pushing for Digger. The story behind the name. Joseph said he knew what we should name it if it was a boy (this was weeks ago) he said that we have to chase Chase so if we named this one Digger then he would love to dig. Which in my house is a big thing all the boys love to dig in the back yard. Amazing the way a 5 year old's brain works! I keep teasing Bryan if we can't agree that that is what we are going to have to name him.

Her teacher also said that she loves to see Jocelyn get excited about things that her whole face lights up and her eye just sparkle. Any of you that have seen this know what I am talking about she also said that she loves her eye lashes. I thought it was funny. But sweet.
I was just being so proud of her and wanted to share!
Christy and her boyfriend Chris brought their quads and the kids had a blast! They drove the kids around the camp site. Bryan took them out on the road and they got in trouble for riding 2 to a quad. They were just lucky they didn't get a ticket.
There was a meadow about 50 feet from a our camp site and we went and played in it in the morning and the kids and adults that played hide and seek had a blast. The person who what the seeker had a ball and the goal was to get back to base with out being hit with the ball. I didn't play but sat and held Chase and watched them play it was so funny watching the grown ups run around like kids!
Back at the camp fire we all just sat and relaxed. Tate and Chase played in the dirt and Jocelyn colored in her new coloring book. Amy and her family came up on Saturday and went to the fish hatchery with us and hung out until after dinner.
All in all it was a pretty good trip other than Bryan's youngest brother Adam got up early both days and woke me and/or my kids up so I didn't get enough sleep. 5:30 the first morning yelling and 6:00 the next morning playing with his air soft gun. Bryan went and stole his other one and went and shot him with it because he woke Chase up who sleep until after 8:30 the morning be for. Karma!

Other than that he is just being his active self. He is always on the go but he is such a good little guy! He loves to play in the rain!

Let's see what has been going on. Bryan bought a motorcycle last week to go back and forth to work on. He is so excited he hasn't owned one since we got married. It is nothing special but it will do what he wants it too.... save us on gas! Jocelyn is doing really well in school her teacher said she is a head of allot of the kids in her class and that she is really mature for her age. She defiantly dose not get that from her dad!!! Tate is keeping me busy as always. He is just enjoying life and figuring out how and why things work the way they do. But he is also being a cuddle bug I love it. How ever it is usually his Mam maw and Daddy he wants not me (which is ok too) Chase still isn't walking. I know he is only 10 3/4 month's but the boy has been walking along holding onto things since 7 months I am ready for him to quite ruining all his clothes. And for me I am trying to keep my head above water. I have decided to loss 15 pounds and have started walking 6 days a week in the mornings. And you add everything else I have to do and I seem to stay pretty busy. I am in our primary Presidency and watch Joseph 2 days a week, help mom with her photagraphy and help watch Josh's kids , and have to do all my mommy stuff I just seem to be super busy all the time. But I am lovong it. But to busy than boring right! Any how it is time to go walking!
